Title page in English: “The life and writings of Dr. Philip Friedman: short bio-bibliographical survey. ” This memorial work outlines the biography and writings of the holocaust survivor and historian Dr. Phillip Friedman. From the Yivo Major Collections description of his work: “Historian Philip Friedman collected documentation on the Holocaust and wrote extensively on the subject. He served as the first director of the Central Jewish Historical Commission in Poland in the post-war period, as consultant to the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, and as director of the YIVO-Yad Vashem bibliographical series on the Holocaust. His papers include eyewitness accounts collected from Holocaust survivors by the Central Jewish Historical Commission in Poland. ” From a New York Times Article (“Holocaust Historian” written by Lucy S. Dawidowicz; January 11, 1981) : “In July 1944 Philip Friedman was one of a mere thousand survivors of the 150, 000 Jews of his native Lvov. Before the war he had already become known as a historian of Polish Jewry, but thenceforth, until his death in New York at 59 in 1960, he dedicated himself to the history of the Jews in that crucible of death which we now call the holocaust. […] Philip Friedman has rightfully been called the father of holocaust history. Except for Emanuel Ringelblum, who did not survive the war, Friedman was the first to organize the collecting of records about Jewish life and death under German wartime occupation. Friedman stimulated survivors to write memoirs and urged them to gather letters, photographs, relics and any remains that would serve future historians. Subjects: Friedman, Philip, 1901-1960.
